Salted Caramel Brownie Recipe

This Salted Caramel Brownie Recipe has just the right combination of sweet and salty – one of my favorite flavor combinations!  I used whole wheat flour to improve the nutrition a bit, but white flour can be substituted.

Salted Caramel Brownies

1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
1 cup sugar
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/3 cup cocoa powder
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/8 teaspoon salt

For topping:
1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup heavy cream
1/2 tsp vanilla extract

Sea salt for topping

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
Spray a 9″ square baking pan with cooking spray.
Blend butter and sugar until light and fluffy, then add the eggs and vanilla, mixing well.
Stir in flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt and mix until well blended.
Spread into prepared pan.
Bake for 30-40 minutes or until toothpick inserted into center of brownies comes out clean.

Caramel sauce topping:
Melt butter in a saucepan over medium low heat.
Stir in the brown sugar and whisk for approximately 2 minutes.
Add in the whipping cream and  whisk for approximately another 2 minutes.
Stir in vanilla.

To serve:
Cut brownies into squares.  Drizzle with caramel topping.  Sprinkle top with sea salt.
